Wondrous installations that defy gravity. On view from November 21, 2021 through May 29, 2022.
On the edge of the Museum Park, as a gateway to the area, is Kunsthal Rotterdam. Since its inception in 1992, this exhibition space has occupied a unique position in the cultural landscape of Rotterdam. Kunsthal Rotterdam does not manage its own collection, as most museums do, but this gives it all the freedom and space it needs – in collaboration with collectors and guest curators – to devote attention to the most diverse subjects in the fields of art, design, fashion, photography and film. Every year more than twenty different exhibitions can be enjoyed there.
But Kunsthal Rotterdam is more than just an exhibition space! For more than 25 years, this striking building has had a huge appeal to architecture lovers. It was one of the first icons that the architectural firm OMA realized in their own city and therefore a building with great architectural value for Rotterdam.
Guided Tour Kunsthal building
If you book a guided tour of the building, an enthusiastic museum guide will introduce you to all the special stories about the icon in 75 minutes. Did you know, for example, that there is a height difference of some six meters between the front and the back of the building? And have you ever noticed that all the facades look completely different? Together with the tour guide you will discover all the ins and outs of Rem Koolhaas’ controversial design.
